The majority of people grows up without being self-conscious. They go through all the popular fashion choices – past and present – they change their hairstyles and do whatever is trending during their awkward teenage years.
Even you probably have a slew of old photos you’re desperately trying to keep hidden. Well, you’re not the only one, that’s for sure. But you definitely can’t say the same for the Russian model Anastassiya Knyazeva.
Thylane Blondeau no longer holds the title of the most beautiful girl in the world
Thylane is the daughter of footballer Patrick Blondeau and actress Véronika Loubry. The young stunner began modeling at the tender age of four, walking on the runway for no less than French designer Jean Paul Gaultier.
She is now 15 years old, still beautiful and signed with the international IMG Models modeling agency. The new title goes to another girl who is just six years old.
Most six-year-olds are getting into all sorts of messy mischief, but not this little girl
Young Ana has already signed with a modeling agency and regularly works as a model at an age when most kids her age only dream of having jobs like hers.
When I was six, I wanted to be a firefighter, or maybe an archeologist, or an actor. It seemed to change on a weekly basis.
Ana is all set with her current gig, showing off her beautiful face for President Kids Management
She’s already appeared in campaigns for companies including Amoreco and KISABIANO, and she has over 500,000 followers on Instagram. Her mother runs the social media account, which is filled with posed and candid shots of the beautiful little girl.
Ana has been modeling for a long time, even at her young age. She started alongside fellow child model, Zhenya Kotova, who received international acclaim after appearing on the cover of Russian Vogue.
It’s easy to see why she’s been dubbed the new most beautiful girl in the world
What sets Ana apart from other child models is her stunning and intense blue eyes. They are what most people mention about the little girl, and they really are quite striking. However, the concept of child models has always been controversial.
Many people believe kids should not be working in any capacity and should be free to enjoy their childhood. This belief extends to child actors as well, many of whom have had very difficult lives growing up in the spotlight.
It’s more difficult to determine the effect modeling has on young children
Some experts are concerned that placing such an emphasis on beauty and looking a certain way at such a young age can make transitioning into adulthood more difficult.
Looks change, and it is important for children to know that they are talented and intelligent as well as beautiful.
In today’s world, it is quite difficult not to compare yourself to the airbrushed, photoshopped pictures in glamour magazines.
Children who have been brought up modeling may feel an even greater pressure to live up to the impossible standards of those doctored images.
However, there are plenty of child models who have grown up in front of the camera and turned out perfectly healthy. Thylane Blondeau was a famous child model and now, at the age of 16, still works in the industry.
Thylane was also given the title of ‘most beautiful girl in the world’ when she was around Ana’s age and even participated in a Vogue photo shoot. While she still models, she has since discovered acting and has appeared in the 2015 French movie Belle and Sebastien: The Adventure Continues.
